Vibrant juicy plum aromas wrapped in smoky oak. Supple and medium- to full-bodied. Absolutely delicious and a phenomenal price!

Harvest Report: Most wine regions throughout South Eastern Australia experienced extreme heat during the harvest season, but many growers were able to pick the grapes and bring them into the winery before they were adversely affected by the extreme temperatures in early to mid March. Before the heat wave began, the growing season was fairly normal although came a bit earlier than in previous years. During January, just before harvest, rain helped to relieve a decade-long draught throughout Australia and assisted in lessening the severity of the March heat wave. Industry experts agree that the 2008 harvest yielded high quality wines with concentrated fruit flavors despite the record heat in March.
